It is made of a hard plastic outer shell with cardboard used for the interior decoration with money slot, so I think it would survive a few accidental falls to the floor.
The one thing I do have to mention is that there are 2 versions of this toy - the one shown by Amazon here is the initial Eccleston Doctor release - this takes the LR44 button-sized batteries which can be hard to find (although Maplins Electronics had some under the name 357X). The speech and tardis landing sound on this release seems to be of poor quality though - very tinny and highly compressed. The button battery power you are looking for is 1.5/155v and as well as LR44 and 357X, the following ones will also work: G13, A76(-1), PX76(A), 675, V13GA, L1154, RW82, D303, 113150, SR44/W, D/V/SP357, 1166A, GP76A.
The newer release features the Tennant Doctor and contains speech from the "Christmas Invasion" special. The sound quality is much improved - it sounds clearer and louder; also the hard-to-find battery problem is solved - this version no longer needs LR44 batteries but much easier to find AAA ones instead - 3 of them needed altogether.
They are both worth getting in there own right, but if you only want one, go for the newer Tennant version for ease of battery finding and better sound quality.
However, as stated in other reviews, the batteries were extremely hard to come by. I looked everywhere for them and have only just tracked them down. Had it been a Christmas present for a child, I can imagine the disappointment at being unable to play with the toy. I can also imagine the frantic chase parents would have had to do on Christmas Day when they realised batteries were needed. As the batteries aren't a particularly common type, they should really supply them.
The actual toy, however (once you have the batteries!) is excellent. When activated (there's a switch on the bottom), it makes the sound of the TARDIS materialising and the light on top flashes. (in fact, this can be a little worrying if you have money in it! You're almost convinced it'll disappear.) When opening the doors, you hear a phrase from the TV show, said by either The Doctor or Rose. So far I've heard five different phrases. I'm not sure if there's any more as it appears to be random.
All in all, the toy is really good but I would make sure you check the batteries before buying any toys by these makers.
The doors open, revealing the vast interior (making it look bigger on the inside). The model I got was from series one of the reboot. Additionally, every time you open the doors you hear audio from the show. And when you close the doors you hear the TARDIS make the noise as if it's about to disappear.
Within the interior is a slot for money - and this item can function as a money bank. To retrieve the money, there's an opening on the base of the item.
Personally, I simply display it. It looks good - and gets people's attention.
